Default Has anyone made custom tow hooks?

I am looking at making my own tow hooks for the front of my ram which I would bolt into the oem hooks spots. I was wondering if anyone has done it and what sort of materials they used ? ( what type of bolts, how thick of metal and did you use a full hoop or a hook style). I will be welding the prides together, but don't want to weld to the frame.
Dodge wants a lot for oem ones and I can't seem to find a ram in the scrap yards with hooks ( or skid plates and tow mirrors for that matter)

Thanks to everyone in advance who can offer assistance.

3rd gen hooks are fairly simple. I would use 1/2 plate for the base. I like the hook over the loop

Also, if you plan on being pulled out of a mud hole with them, make sure you reinforce the spots where the bumper connects to the frame with some steel welded around the holes. Trust me, I got pulled out with them and my bumper bent up because the bolts dug into the mounting slots on the bumper lol.
